520    The Psychopath Factory: How Capitalism Organizes Empathy 
       examines how the requirements, stimuli, effects and 
       environments of work condition our empathy. In some cases,
       work calls for no empathy--characters who don't blink or 
       flinch in the face of danger nor crack under pressure. In 
       other cases, capitalism requires empathy in spades--
       charming, friendly, sensitive and listening managers, 
       customer service agents and carers. When workers are 
       required to either ignore their empathy to do a job, or 
       dial it up to increase productivity, they are entering a 
       psychopathic modality ... Capitalism pressures us to feign
       empathy and leverage social relationships on one hand, 
       whilst being cold and pragmatic on the other. We are 
       passionate and enthusiastic whilst keeping a professional 
       distance. Sympathy, care, compassion and altruism are 
       important. The Psychopath Factory ... argues that it is a 
       mistake to presuppose that empathy can achieve these. 
       Rather than being subject to the late capitalist 
       organization of our empathy, psychopathy could be a means 
       of escape.
